More good news this week. GREY2K USA is reporting that the gambling numbers on greyhound racing have declined for the 19th straight year.
It’s a sign that there is a dwindling number of people who haven’t awakened to the reality of the cruelty of the animal-gambling industry over – including dog racing.
On his Saving Greys blog, GREY2K co-founder Carey Theil notes the last year there as an actual increase in gambling was 1991. As the awareness about dog racing increases, we are seeing a decline in the industry. It just can’t come fast enough.
The biggest trailing factors, as things stand now, are the state governments and the federal government. Too many of our elected officials continue to protect the animal-cruelty industry across the board.
